Injuries to Children’s Law

Neil Burns

“Throughout my career I have represented children who have been injured as the result of others negligence. Whether it’s visiting a child at the hospital, engaging him in a game to discuss how an incident happened, or preparing her for testimony, I feel grateful to be involved, to be trusted, and to be helpful. In addition to pursuing the child’s legal rights as a victim of a trauma, I am often selected to be trustee of the monies from the case. This gives me the opportunity to remain involved with the family – helping provide educational vacations, tutors, and motor vehicles for them when they grow up!”
